A Bit About

Darrel Williams

Darrel, a founding partner and the owner of Neighboring Concepts, has spent almost a quarter-century demonstrating that the practice of architecture can transform communities socially as well as physically, with a focus on community and the urban context, not simply the buildings.

He got involved in community work because of concern for a dilapidated neighborhood park. That led to an appointment to the Parks and Recreation Commission, then to eight years as a Mecklenburg County commissioner. Since then he has poured his time and talents into building a multidisciplinary firm that produces thoughtful and sustainable urban planning, innovative architectural design and responsible real estate projects.
